RUMOR MILL

Thursday - December 5th

Per Elliot Friedman of Sportsnet:

Prior to the December 1st deadline, the Oikers apparently tried again to move Jesse Pujljujarvi, and the Rangers were reportedly one of the teams interested.

The trade would have involved Lias Andersson going the other way, but ultimately they could work out a deal.

Sather's Last Stand?
Posted by Michael M. Ramos ≡ - February 21, 2009

Back in March or 2004(last year of the uncapped NHL), Sather went and got rid of alot of his overpaid veterans and stockpiled draft picks for the upcoming drafts of '04 and '05. Our beloved Leetch was trade to Toronto for Kondratiev,Immonen, and a #1 pick which turned out to be Korpikoski and a #2 which turned out to be Sauer(defenseman in Hartford that is a stay at home type that could make the team next year after shoulder surgery this year). Simon got dealt to Calgary for Betts and Jamie McLellan. Nedved and Markkanen to Edmonton for Valliquette, Helminen, and a #2(Dane Byers--a poor mans Avery). Malakhov went to Philadelphia for a 2nd round pick that later was used to trade up to get Staal. Barnaby went to Colorado for David Liffiton(concussion problems) and a 2nd rounder(Brandon Dubinsky). So out of the purge and new concept of the youth movement, Sather got Staal, Dubinsky, Korpikoski, Betts, Valliquette,and also have Sauer and Byers on the cusp of a roster spot.

The new Rangers Mantra was "Youth Movement". They realized throwing money at players wasn't working. Jagr came along as a gift from the NHL at under 5 million a year. Sather surrounded him with players that fit his style of play. Everything seemed to be working in Rangerland. The Rangers were competetive, making the playoffs, and bringing youth from the minors to play actual roles on the team. Ranger fans were being rewarded for being loyal. But this year, Sather seems to have lost his way.

Last years trade deadline saw Sather trade Montoya(would only be a backup to Henrik),Hossa, and a pick to Phoenix for Sjostrom, LeNeuve,Gratton, and a conditional pick. The Rangers gave up a #4 pick for Backman. Only Sjostrom is with the team and Backman hurt the team more than Sjostrom helped last year.

This offseason, Sather went back to his old ways by overspending in getting Redden,Voros, Rissmiller,Kalinin, and resingning Rozsival. Mara came back at a lesser price. He got rid of Backman by trading him with Tyutin for Zherdev and Fritsche who he later traded for Reitz. What he does next nobody knows.

Sather had it right by making the moves that have placed on our roster Staal, Girardi(signed out of college undrafted),Korpikoski,Dubinsky,Callahan,Dawes, and of course King Henrik(who only got a chance because of Kevin Weekes injury).

As I have said all season long, Sather--the Rangers fans have been loyal and you said it was a 5 year program for the youth movement. DO NOT disband it in year 4 by trading for the HIGH price tickets as Lecavier and/or Whitney. Stay the course with the youth and maybe bring in Tkachuk for leadership for the kids to follow.

If his moves do not work out for this seson, maybe Dolan will finally move him out of the G.M. role and bring in someone with a fresh outlook into the CAP controlled NHL.
